5Now he þt hath wrought vs for the selfe same thing, is God, who also hath giuen vnto vs the earnest of the spirit. 6Therefore we are alwayes confident, knowing that whilest wee are at home in the body, wee are absent from the Lord. 7(For we walke by faith, not by sight.)8We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord. 9Wherefore we labour, that whether present or absent, we may be accepted of him.
